It's Remembrance Day on 11th November and the red poppy has become an emblem of Remembrance.
I crocheted my own this year using this pattern
I used Patons Fairytale Soft 4ply yarn in a bright red and a 3.5mm hook.
A black silk button gave my poppy a centre with a badge pin sewn on behind it.
Despite wearing my own poppy, when I see the Royal British Legion selling theirs, I'll still put my money in the tin.
